Brain Computer Interface Next Generation of Human Computer Interaction


Published on

In the area of HCI research the main focus is on defining new ways of human interaction with computer system. With the passes of time a number of inventions have been made in this field. In initial days we used only keyboards to access our computer system (e.g. in Unix Terminal). In Second phase, after invention of mouse and other pointing devices, we started using graphical user interface using pointing devices like mouse which make the use of computer more easy and comfortable. Nowadays we are using pressure-driven mechanism, i.e. touch screen, which is common at ATMs, Mobile phones and PDAs etc. Although it is not as common in daily works but the release of tablet PCs and its popularity shows that the day is not much far when we wouldn’t be having keyboards and mouse at all.
All of these inventions have been made for balancing the requirements of society and user. E.g. Games, Multimedia Applications etc are not possible using only-Keyboard so we need mouse driven system for such applications, similarly we cannot have large keyboard on mobile so we need a touch screen system for mobiles. In addition to these traditional HCI models, there are some more advance HCI technology too for adding more flexibility and hence making the product more useful. E.g. swap card system at office doors for attendance and ATM-swap card for shopping. Speech processing systems are also there where we can access our computer system using our speech. Fig 1 shows most popular traditional HCI system.

Brain Computer Interface Next Generation of Human Computer Interaction

  1. 1. Seminar On “Brain Computer Interface: Next Generation of Human Computer Interaction” By Suraj S.Kasture (Final Year A-Section) Under the guidance of Prof. A. P. Jadhao Department Of Computer Science and Engineering Jawaharlal Darda Institute of Engineering & Technology, Yavatmal, (M.S), India-445001 Session 2013-14
  2. 2. Contents  Introduction  Literature Review  Mechanism Of BCI  Significance And Relevance Of BCI Technology  BCI Application  Challenges For BCI  The Future Of BCI Technologies  Conclusion
  3. 3. Introduction  What is Brain Computer Interface?  It is a communication channel from a human's brain to a computer, which does not resort to the usual human output pathways as muscles. Figure : Traditional HCI System
  4. 4. History Of BCI  Hans Berger in 1929 on a device that later came to be known as electroencephalogram (EEG), which could record electrical potentials generated by brain activity. The Human Brain  The brain is undoubtedly the most complex organ found among the carbon-based life forms.  The average human brain weights around 1400 grams. The most relevant part of brain concerning BMI„s is the cerebral cortex. 
  5. 5. Electroencephalography  Electroencephalography (EEG) is a method used in measuring the electrical activity of the brain. Figure 3.1: EEG Equipment
  6. 6.  Scope of BCI Applications  BCI as human computer interaction technique we can have fastest computer system than we ever had because BCI does not contains manual information transfer at all. Figure : Different Ways To Interact With Computer.
  7. 7. Literature Review Existing HCI Technologies  Human brain and the EEG in order to design a BMI.  pattern recognition approach is based on cognitive mental tasks.  operant conditioning approach is based on the selfregulation of the EEG response  The user activity has three different levels: physical, cognitive and affective.
  8. 8. Recent Advances in HCI  Intelligent and Adaptive HCI  Ubiquitous Computing and Ambient Intelligence Figure : Canasta Virtual Keyboard
  9. 9. Mechanism Of BCI Architecture of Brain  As per Neurology, science related to brain structure and other aspects or brain, our brain contains special types of cells called neurons. We have intelligence due to specific arrangement of neurons in our brain. Reading brain using Electroencephalography (EEG)  EEG, study of brain signals, is a technique which makes us capable to read the potential pattern develops in our brain.  EEG is core technique behind BCI.
  10. 10. Abstract view of BCI system Thinking in Brain Reading Brain by EEG Analysis of EEG spectrum Recognizing EEG spectrum Converting into suitable computer signal Sending the signals to computer system Feedback to User

  12. 12. Significance And Relevance Of BCI Technology BCI and Web Technology  A very prominent benefit of a web-application over a desktop application is that it is platform as well as devices independent.  Advance web technologies like Cloud Computing in conjunction with Mobile technology has potential to change the shape of our work place from desktop based to web and mobile based.  BCI in Medical Science  BCI has a large range of applications in medical science ranging from brain treatment to neuroprosthesis.
  13. 13. BCI vs. Eco friendly IT BCI system facilitates operating of a computer system without having a large number of accessories it makes a computer system very highly Eco-friendly.  BCI and Society BCI has a very promising future for those who cannot use computer system due to their physical limitation or they are not able to understand the terminology. Since BCI does not require any physical connection.
  14. 14. BCI Applications The Mental Typewriter BCI offers paralyzed patients improved quality of life Military Applications
  15. 15. Challenges For BCI Noise Filtering Clustering of Neuron Signal Acquisition User Interface Design
  16. 16. The Future Of BCI Technologies  Future task-oriented BCIs, based on advances in sensor technologies, analysis algorithms, artificial intelligence, multi-aspect sensing of the brain, behavior, and environment through pervasive technologies, and computing algorithms, will be capable of collecting and analyzing brain data for extended time periods and are expected to become prevalent in many aspects of daily life. If and when brain-sensing technologies are worn during portions of people‟s daily lives, the possibility of using the BCI infrastructure for “opportunistic” applications arises.
  17. 17. Conclusion  In this seminar I presents various aspects of BCI system inclusion its structure, applications and promises to IT world. Various challenges which need to address for making BCI a successful and consumable technology. The main motivation of the seminar is to bring this new emerging technology to the front BCI development depends on close interdisciplinary cooperation between neuroscientists, engineers, psychologists, computer scientists, and rehabilitation specialists. BMI„s will have the ability to give people back their vision and hearing. They will also change the way a person looks at the world.
